GeForce GTX 590 

Released March, 2011
  • 608 MHz
  • 3 GB GDDR5
6.6 Out of 10

In the next step you build the board and tune the clock speeds and voltage to fit into those limitations.

Overclocking potential is quite nice and pays of well if you are willing to tackle it.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX 590

We wanted to bring you a Quad-SLI review of two of these cards in SLI, but NVIDIA did not have a driver ready.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

With a card like GeForce GTX 590, that has so much latent performance, I couldn't wait to try bumping the voltage to see how much I could gain from it.

If NVIDIA manages to tune their algorithm some more, they could get some extra performance out of their design - without the typical driver/shader optimizations that we see from time to time in graphics drivers.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)
Being the vendor behind the fastest graphics card money can buy means a lot for both NVIDIA and AMD, in equal measures, as neither is willing to accept the "second best" spot while trying to spin off their mediocrity with "performance/features to price" (unlike the desktop CPU industry).
